Avatar are touring throughout North America and we snagged some interview time with lead singer Johannes Eckerström at New York’s Highline Ballroom. Eckerström shared this Tales of Touring Terror story wherein he and his bandmates got a good pranking thanks to the band Evergrey. Avatar’s new concept album, ‘Feathers & Flesh’, is out now!


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
